A small blaze sparked along the bike path between Caper Acres and Big Chico Creek. Firefighters were quick to respond to the blaze which burned only about a half acre. I was lucky enough to respond quickly in time to catch crews still hosing down hot spots. It is pretty rare to get this type of blaze so low in Lower Bidwell Park. But it does happen. Luckily no serious damage was done.
